I am a passionate influencer in the feld of transformative HR. I believe that everyone can be forward thinking and build the skills needed to "future-proof" their organization regardless of the amount of analytics expertise or starting point of the organization. I delight in bringing those who have possibility avoided analytics to discover that they are not only good at, but enjoy the field and help bring them more self-efficacy in the field.
I love to share my passion at conferences as a speaker, panelist, chairperson or while leading customized workshops on topics in people analytics, talent management, future of work, L&D and HR technology.
